How To Fix the “Google Forms Internal Error”

This article examines the Google Forms Internal Error that prevents you from sharing your forms.

Method 1. Reload the Page

Reloading the page is a good initial step to take. Internal server failures (error code 500) can prevent pages from loading or functioning, and they are sometimes triggered by something as simple as a hiccup during the page’s retrieval from the server.

Method 2. Reboot Your Computer.

Despite the low probability, you could try restarting your computer to see if it clears out any temporary files that could be preventing your browser from working properly or Google Forms from functioning properly.

Method 3. See if the URL Works

Also, double-check that the URL you entered into the form was entered correctly. A Google Form may only be shared via its URL, so making sure it’s correct is crucial. If even a single letter is incorrect, you may be sent to a different form or even none at all.

Method 4. Change Your Browser.

Online forms and other web apps can experience issues when used with browsers that handle URLs inconsistently. Naturally, Chrome is the ideal browser for using Google’s online services, but any Chromium-based browser (Edge, for instance) will do.

Method 5. Empty the Browser’s Temporary Files

This issue can also be caused by cached files that have been corrupted or by damaged files on your computer. Erase them and see if that helps Chrome start working again.

First, open chrome:/settings/clearBrowserData by entering the aforementioned address into your browser’s address bar and pressing the Enter key.

Second, choose to clear your cache and/or cookies and make sure the Time range is set to All time. To start over with a clean slate, hit the Clear now option.

Please close your browser and try to access the link again. There shouldn’t be any issues with opening the form.

Method 6. Eliminate Add-Ons

This is only one of many issues that might be brought on by a corrupt or otherwise broken extension.

Whether the browser is acting up, head to chrome:/extensions and disable all of them to see if it works properly without them.

Method 7. Substitute a Different Domain Name Server

There are many available free DNS providers you can use to resolve this issue. The Domain Name System (DNS) used in this example is Google’s.

  • Follow Step 1 by using the Windows key + I to access the Settings menu, then select Network & Internet.
  • Next, pick Adaptor settings and click the button.
  • Third, select Properties by right-clicking the connected network (Wi-Fi or LAN).
  • To do this, go to the Protocols tab, locate Internet Protocol Version 4, right-click on it, and select Properties.
  • The fifth step is to choose the radio choice labelled “Use the following DNS server addresses” and then to enter 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 into the preferred and secondary DNS fields, respectively.

You can try viewing the form again after restarting your browser. Nothing should go wrong, it seems.
